When I arrived in Spearfish last year, one of the first big events I attended was a Downtown Friday Nights event on Main Street. I explained then what Madison and other small towns can learn about downtown economic and cultural development from this popular Spearfish event. Review that post, LAIC members.
With that point made, here are some pix from tonight's family stroll down Spearfish's lively Main Street:
Hey, what are all those people doing in the middle of Main Street?
Oh, that's just a few hundred people outside, drinking beer, and enjoying another Downtown Friday Night event in Spearfish.
32 Below came down from Fargo to play Main Street. Lots of people came to listen, but the kids own the dance floor.
Kids not dancing were bouncing around down the block...
But who needs inflatables when you can breakdance on the center stripe? What a feeling!
Patricia and Jeremy grow vegetables at Cycle Farm in Spearfish Valley. They haul those veggies on their awesome cargo bikes. In addition to farmers market sales, they contract sales on the Community Supported Agriculture model.
If all that green stuff drives you nuts, turn around and hand Joycie's Street Meats your cash. They'll give you some good wieners from the Whitewood Weiner Bus, heavy on the kraut. (But remember: wiener is the tube steak;Â weiner is a German surname Â that may meanÂ guy who makes wheels.)
32 Below finishes the "Devil Went Down to Georgia" solo and agrees: music on Main Street rocks! Thank you, Spearfish!
